It's a slow news day (a slow news month, actually), so we're going to take this opportunity to get on top of our soap box and demand an NBA franchise hire Rucker Park's Duke Tango as its next PA announcer. This is the sort of thing that can't wait until we get rich and buy the Atlanta Hawks.

Don't recognize the name? That's because you probably know him as the guy that just keeps screaming "OH BABY!!! OHHHHHHH BAH-BY!!!!!!!" at the Rucker.

And yet the best Tango can do is end up on the AND1 Mixtape Tour. It's unreal that Mason of the Detroit Pistons can come the most famous PA announcer in sports simply from thinking of "De-troit Bas-ket-ball!" while Tango still can't find an NBA gig despite being the Steve Nash of dishing out nicknames.

True, the constant screaming would drive away elderly fans and piss off veteran players. But it's a risk we're willing to take. And after the Tim Donaghy scandal, it should be one the NBA is worth taking as well.

Personally, we think Tango would be perfect for the Brooklyn Nets when they finally end up moving out of East Rutherford.

Jigga - are you listening?

Until then, we'll just have to continue enjoying playing this clip on a loop:
